Don't Let's Be Beastly to the Germans Lyrics

Don't Let's Be Beastly To The Germans - Noel Coward and Orchestra

Don't let's be beastly to the Germans

Now our victory is ultimately won

It was just those nasty Nazis who persuaded them to fight

And their Beethoven and Bach are really far worse than their bite

Let's be meek to them

And turn the other cheek to them

And try to bring out their latent sense of fun

Let's give them full air parity

And treat the rats with charity

But don't let's be beastly to the Hun

We must be kind

And with an open mind

We must endeavour to find a way

To let the Germans know

That now the war is over

They are not the ones who have to pay

We must be sweet

And tactful and discreet

And now they've suffered defeat

We mustn't let

Them feel upset

Or ever get the feeling

That we're cross with them or hate them

Our future policy must be to reinstate them

 

Don't let's be beastuly to the Germans

When we've definitely got them on the run

Let us treat them very kindly as we would a valued friend

We might send them out some Bishops as a form of lease and lend

Let's be sweet to them

And day by day repeat to them

That 'sterilization' simply isn't done

Let's help the dirty swine again

To occupy the Rhine again

But don't let's be beastly to the Hun

We must be just

And win their love and trust

And in additon we must

Be wise

And ask the conquered lands to join our hands to aid them

That would be a wonderful surprise

 

For many years

They've been in floods of tears

Because the poor little dears

Have been so wronged and only longed

 

To cheat the world

Deplete the world

And beat

The world to blazes

This is the moment when we ought to sing their praises

Don't let's be beastly to the Germans

For you can't deprive a ganster of his gun

Though they've been a little naughty to the Czechs and Poles and Dutch

But I don't suppose those countries really minded very much

Let's be free with them and share the B B C with them

We mustn't prevent them basking in the sun

Let's soften their defeat again and build their bloody fleet again

But don't let's be beastly to the Hun

Don't let's be beastly to the Germans

When the age of peace and plenty has begun

We must send them steel and oil and coal and everything they need

For their peaceable intentions can be always guaranteed

Let's employ with them a sort of strength through joy with them

They're better than us at honest manly fun

Let's let them feel they're swell again and bomb us all to hell again

 

But don't let's be beastly to the Hun
